What is Galentine's Day Anyway?
A day to celebrate female friendship! It's origin as a holiday can be traced to Amy Poehler's Parks and Recreation character Leslie Knope. The holiday occurs every year on Feb. 13, the day before Valentine's Day.
“Oh, it’s only the best day of the year…Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus Frittatas”.
For the gals you can't celebrate with IRL, we suggest surprising them with a little something. Frittatas don't ship very well, so consider something along the lines of Sweets & Treats, Earrings, or Face Masks.
As for Valentine's day, if a Hallmark card and bouquet of grocery store flowers don't quite cut it, you've come to the right place! We have a few ideas...
Unique Valentine's Day Gift Ideas
Spend quality time together at home or abroad. If your budget is basically unlimited (nicely done, btw!) pair a getaway to Paris or Santorini with a handpoured candle that hints at the destination.
If a vacation isn't quite in the cards, the Escapist Candle Set is still a solid choice! Perhaps pair with a notebook or notepad so you can plan future dream destinations together.
A Weekender Duffel Bag + Staycation is another popular choice.
If you're staying in and cooking dinner (ok, ordering in works, too) grab a bottle of sparkling wine or spirits and add some fancy cocktail cubes for extra flavor. Take it a step further with personalized champagne flutes or wine stems. Warning: you're gonna need about 5 business days to get this designed + delivered, so plan ahead.
A few other experience pairing ideas:
- Ski Hat + Lift Ticket
- Wine Accessories + Winery Tour
- You're My Jam Hand Cream + Mani/Pedi Gift Certificate
- Succulent Garden Candle and/or Potted Plant(s) + Botanic Gardens Outing
- Ultimate Spa Headband and/or Facial Steam + Facial Gift Certificate
- Custom Cutting Board + Cooking Class
